I am a multi-talented artist with interest in landscapes, figures and the words in between. Started painting again in 2017 since studying Fine Arts at the Yaba College of Arts & Technology, Nigeria with specialty in Graphic design. I also hold a MSc in Marketing Communication from Manchester Metropolitan University, Manchester. When not painting, I am working in my marketing/graphic design hangout managing one project or another. Or I am plain out having fun with family/ friends playing tennis, bowling or just seeing non-exotic places.
So why Visual Art? On one hand, I create art (and indeed literature) to release the tension that may otherwise shorten my life :). On the other, I paint to celebrate the beauty in a world full of vile hate and negativity. I believe that livening faces through art (and poetry) is a life worth living.
L!, my second exhibition (coinciding with my 50th birthday) is coming up this winter. This is sequel to a successful one held last summer at Ulster Gallery, in Manchester. 10% of all sold works went to BoothCentre (a local charity looking after homeless people in Manchester). Keep your eyes peeled!
